NAMPA, Idaho (AP) - The Ada County Sheriff’s Office has launched a criminal investigation against a Nampa police officer.

Patrick Orr, the sheriff’s office spokesman, said Monday that 39-year-old Jarad Layne Webb has been arrested and faces one charge of obtaining controlled substance by fraud and one misdemeanor charge of filing a false police report.

Webb has worked for the Nampa Police Department since 2005. He is currently on administrative paid leave.

The Nampa Police Department has also launched an internal investigation into Webb. The department says it will release details if the officer’s employment status changes.
